Most of the districts across Pennsylvania have concluded their regular season and are now participating in the all-important district playoffs.

In the past, teams could gain a berth into the PIAA postseason by reaching the district semifinals or in some cases, even the quarterfinals.

For this year, that is a thing of the past. The PIAA is going old school. The only way to participate in their tournament is to win a district title.

Five new teams debuted or resurfaced into the latest HSSN boys basketball state rankings.

However, there was only one change at the top. In Class 6A, Archbishop Wood beat Roman Catholic to leap from past the District 12 rival Cahillites to No. 1.
